Vaux was an important brewery in Sunderland in the North East of England which was founded in the early 19th century and collapsed at the turn of the 21st. These beer mats all come from the massive bin bag of several hundred we acquired from Ebay a month or so ago and span, by our reckoning, about a decade from c.1971 to 1982.

So there’s a deliberate joke here about Samson’s hair, right? http://boakandbailey.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/vaux_side_a_c1971.jpgWe know this is from c.1971 because… http://boakandbailey.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/vaux_decimal_converter_c1971.jpg…this is the flipside. http://boakandbailey.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/vaux_1973_gold_tankard_474.jpgWe’re pretty sure this is from 1973. http://boakandbailey.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/vaux_1970s_dray_2.jpgThey see me rollin’, they hatin’. http://boakandbailey.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/vaux_1970s_dray_1.jpgThis was obviously part of a collectible series but we’ve only got two. http://boakandbailey.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/vaux_1970s_dray_1_reverse.jpgThe flipside of the mat above listing the full range of Vaux beers from… maybe around 1975? http://boakandbailey.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/vaux_good_cheer_1982.jpgThis is just rather nice. BrewDog should nick this slogan for their bars. http://boakandbailey.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/vaux_basic_1980s.jpgAnd a spectacular one to finish… Oh, sorry.
